A West Virginia Bigfoot Captured on Video?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 23rd, 2015

A West Virginia man on Saturday captured on video an unknown creature he says he is certain to be Bigfoot.

David Watts, a multiple online store owner dedicated to selling artistic accessories, says he was out in the “middle of nowhere” when he captured the images.

“That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. You always think it’s a hoax until you actually see it with your own eyes yourself,” Watts said about the encounter.

The 1-minute-long video shows what appears to be a bipedal being walking down a wooded area of an unspecified mountain. The quality of the film is only 240p and difficult to make out a clear shape of the alleged beast.

“There was a very very large man-like bear creature walking around up on the ridge. I was looking right at him, it was just kind of hanging out. The weirdest thing I have ever seen in my life. I was near a road, so of course Bigfoot being notoriously shy, so he is not gonna come down here.”


This is very poor quality and I apologize for that. The camera didn’t showcase what my eyes saw very well. There are much better videos out there which begs me to wonder, with all the evidence out there why hasn’t this thing been cataloged by science yet? I mean, how many more hair samples, eyewitnesses, footprints and videos do they need? I think scientists are just stubborn old men who don’t believe in anything unless it’s on their dissection table. I believe these things are real and I believe that I may have seen one. I wasn’t looking for it, it just happened. It’s naive to think that a large creature with even a moderate amount of intelligence can’t hide in such huge tracts of land without being seen. Indeed, it’s not only possible, I believe it to be fact. Now, scientists estimate that there are thousands of uncataloged creatures in the deepest parts of the ocean. Why is it then impossible for something to be deep in the woods where people rarely if ever tread? I think it was just last year that they “found” a huge type of bat… Was it hiding, lucky or just in the right place at the right time in front of the right people? How long was the Panda a myth before it was “discovered?”

    Well, Rule One of Bigfoot Film Faking: don’t bother doing this.

    On Saturday, in Shenandoah National Park, looking from a Skyline Drive overlook, I saw a big black spot in the distant woods. It appeared to be moving. I thought: is that a bear? Is that a *bear*? I have only had one other bear sighting remotely like it, and for that one I had binoculars to confirm. Had I never ever seen a bear, I might have video’d it too…and you would see something like this.

    Know what else makes him sound sincere? The rest of his comments. Right on point, actually.

    Why *couldn’t* it be one? It could. Not that that is gonna do anything for what we see here.

    AND, just to beat the dead horse . . . and to try to ride it:

    Again, where’s the follow up? The video is too far off, too grainy with no other details other than a blow by blow about why “couldn’t” it be the big guy. Sure it could. However, without anything else to back up the poor video, it could be a bear, a person, or even some other cryptid. We’ll never know.

    And I’m with him–the woods in North America alone are large enough and capable of creating a space for something with intelligence to hide from humanity. The forests and woods are not as populated as many seem to think, and there are certainly not people patrolling the thousands of square miles of forest as scoftics would have you believe. There is quite enough room for something large like Bigfoot to hide.

    I’ll go to the example of the 10 ft ray discovered in the rivers of Asia…living alongside people for who knows how long only to be finally discovered by catching one in 2010. Go figure. It’s definitely possible for Bigfoot to exist and be living alongside us (loosely speaking). However, as DWA said–this video doesn’t go any length toward proving it…
